Julian Assange reveals that it was UK public relations firm SCL rigging elections and not Russia.
Liam O Hare on the deep connections between Cambridge Analytica’s parent company Strategic Communication Laboratories (SCL Group) and the Conservative Party and military establishment, ‘Board members include an array of Lords, Tory donors, ex-British army officers and defense contractors. This is scandal that cuts to the heart of the British establishment.’
It has long been assumed that Russia was the only foreign government involved in manufacturing manufacturing the dodgy ‘Golden Shower’ dossier that spawned a political witch-hunt against the president.
Last week, Assange reminded everyone that the British government – and specifically its security service, MI6 – was also intimately involved.
Before there was Cambridge Analytica, there was the Strategic Communication Laboratories Group — SCL Group, for short. Founded in 1993 by a British ad man named Nigel Oakes, it is, basically, a messaging and PR firm that’s done work for governments, politicians, and militaries around the world. Its clients included governments and politicians in Indonesia, Thailand, Kenya, the UK, and elsewhere.
Cambridge Analytica’s parent company Strategic Communication Laboratories (SCL Group) has deep ties to the British Conservative Party, the military establishment, the House of Lords, defence contractors and the Royal family.
